Shahrukh Khan and Mahira Khan starrer Raees was slated to release during Eid 2016 and would have then clashed with Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer Sultan. However, in the nick of time, SRK and the film-makers decided to postpone the film's release to a different date, and this has not gone down well with Mahira Khan.
The Pakistani beauty, Mahira, has been receiving several offers
from Bollywood film-makers but she's not able to give her nod to
any of them, as she has signed a contract with the film-makers not
to star in any other movie until Raees is released.
Bollywoodlife quoted a source as saying, "Mahira has been
getting interesting offers in Bollywood, but she has signed a
contract with the Raees makers that stops her from taking on any
new work in Bollywood until the release of the film."
Mahira Khan, has a dream debut in Bollywood starring alongside
Shahrukh Khan in Raees, and just when she thought that her days in
B-town would turn out to be really good, her hands have been tied,
Raees, is now scheduled to release in January, 2017 but still
SRK and the film-makers are not 100 percent sure about it, as they
fear a clash with Hrithik Roshan's Kaabil would hamper their box
office collections. Talks are on and off with Rakesh Roshan and we
will have to wait and see if SRK can convince Rakeh Roshan to
postpone Kaabil's release date, which is very unlikely.
